slickbg56: Until it gets wet in which case their horrendous lol.
rewright: Cheers, Hardworking maybe, accomplished definitely not. As you've pointed out though, they can definitely grow stuff.
pingpong: Thanks, I'm glad your liking the story, I tend to just make it up as I go along.
Entry 2: What an Industrious town!
Well as the title suggests this entry mainly concerns dirty, polluting, life shortening industrial growth. Fun huh!
Anyway here's a look at the demand indicator brought forward to Jimbob by his advisor's.
As you can see people apparently want dirty, polluting industry despite its inherent issues. Anyway, ever one to try and appease the growing population (and in his never ending search for a quiet life) mayor Jimbob went ahead with approving zoning for new industrial areas. These, for some unknown reason ended up being built in East Newport and the newly named Cressington, effectively ending the 'which half of Newport is better' argument, and shutting up the increasingly snooty sims in Cressington. Of course none of the industry luckily ended up near him (some might say he planned it this way), so he's not really bothered by all the upset.
Shown below you can see the industrial growth in the mentioned areas.
What is bothering the mayor though is much closer to his heart. You see, having resigned himself tot he fact that he will never be able to peacefully farm again, he turned some of his farmland over to have a farmers market built on it (you can also see the Newport Church in the right hand side).
The pride of the small town, this area quickly became a busy and popular place and went helped pacify the sims angry at having polluting factories built next door to their homes
At least up until the point where Jimbob's friend, Roger decided to turn his land into a state fair, therefore getting one up on Jimbob.
So, slightly peeved, Jimbob has allowed cheap and dirty industry to be built in the small town of Fairington that surrounds the fair, destroying both the friendship and property value.
Anyway that's all for the industrious actions of our dear mayor Jimbob this time. Join us next time as Netonia (hopefully) continues to grow.
Oh and here's a year 10 overview to leave you with.
Till next time
